06:03 PM ET 06.07 | Michael Vick probably believed what many of us believed - that he was the only Eagles quarterback mobile enough to run Chip Kelly's offense. That means Vick is figuring out what the rest of us are figuring out - that Nick Foles is not only a viable candidate to start this season, he is beginning to look like the leading candidate. That would explain Vick's comments to several news outlets after Thursday's final pre-training camp practice. Vick told reporters he found it "tough" to share first-team reps with Foles. "I have to continue to be a professional and put my feelings and emotions to the side," Vick said. "But it's hard. I would be lying if I said it wasn't, but that's just what I have to deal with."

X goes left and blocks for O who has to make a choice of keeping the ball or throwing it to X who is on a 15 yard slant... not hard at all Vick.

That's funny. The blurb nor the article indicates he's struggling with the offense.

The Eagles are going to pay a lot of money to a backup QB if they start Foles. Start Vick and play Foles at some point when Mike is hurt. In all likelihood, they are only going to be playing Foles to showcase him for a trade since they drafted Matt Barkley.

You need to read between the lines.

When they say "he is beginning to look like the leading candidate" that's really just code word for he's dropping on the depth chart.

No big deal!!!! The Eagles will do well this year, as they are in the weakest conference of the NFC!!!!

Take heart Mikey in the fact you can still outrun Lady Gaga.

Get some pit bulls, some buckets filled with water, and some live battery cables. Add some Crack, Crystal Meth, and a few more goodies. Vick will feel right at home!

Bye Bye Michael!

Redskins and Giants will be fighting for the division. It will be surprising on who will be last, Dallas or Philly.

Or he. I don't think it's ever been technically proven that it's a "she" or a "he" yet. Only it's mother truly knows.

Some of the stuff you people say embarrasses me. Be cool, let things shake out. Eagles are play off bound.
